Reviewing MCT Sequential One s110 EVO
Manufacture Contemporaine du Temps, or short MCT, introduced the Sequential One in 2009 and it is still in the collection. It indicates the hours with 4 modules composed of 5 triangular prisms each, and the minutes are indicated by a central minute hand on a 270 degree jumping minute-sector. Today we’re reviewing the MCT Sequential One s110 EVO.
The base movement of MCT Sequential One s110 EVO measures 4.35mm in height, and is designed rather nice. The main spring bridge looks a bit like the Star Trek logo, and features beautifully hand finished angles and internal angles that also have been beveled and polished. Also the balance wheel bridge features both internal and external beveled and polished edges and the entire bridge layout looks quite striking and different from any other watch I’ve seen.
This movement needs enough energy to rotate one set of five prisms every hour and for this MCT Sequential One s110 EVO developed a patented system, which is also connected to the rotation of the 270 degree minutes sector-dial. And that’s absolutely necessary, since fluctuations in energy, especially strong fluctuations, have a negative influence on the chronometric precision of a watch. The in-house developed and patented system prevents these strong fluctuations and ensures good and stable chronometric rates.
Te case of MCt Sequential One s110 EVO only 7.10mm tick on the edges, somehow gives the visual impression that it isn’t a thick case. And although the thickness right in the middle is 15.5mm, is doesn’t feel thick either. One of the factor that also help to improve the wearing comfort, is the curved case back that is mildly hollow and follows the shape of the wrist.
